Summary Information for Field Activity 2008-007-FA

Area of Operations: Great South Bay, Manhasset Bay, Northport Harbor, Long Island, Long Island Sound, New York, Connecticut, United States, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: May 05, 2008 to May 23, 2008

Chief scientist: John Bratton

Objectives: Continuous resistivity profiling and geochemical sampling.

Type of Activity: Sampling; Photography; Resistivity;Resistivity

Information to be derived: Samples and chemical analysis
Sub-bottom resistivity profiles

Summary: Collected resistivity data and geochemical samples to identify sites and rates of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) to the coastal ocean. Data gathered included resistivity profiles, ground water and surface water geochemical data (temperature and salinity) and samples to be analyzed for nutrients, radioisotopes, and trace metals.
